FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC?
JUVÉDERM® and JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC work on a different area of the face. JUVÉDERM® softens moderate to severe wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, such as the nasolabial folds. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC, however, adds volume to the cheek area. JUVÉDERM® is clinically proven to last up to 1 year with optimal correction at initial treatment and JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC is clinically proven to last up to 2 years with optimal treatment.
What is the difference between JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC and other dermal fillers?
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC was specially designed to fill and lift the mid-face and cheeks. It uses a new advanced technology from Allergan called Vycross, which results in a smooth gel that flows easily and consistently. This special cross-linking technology not only produces the lift and fill that is unique to VOLUMA, but it also contributes to its long-lasting nature.
What is the treatment process?
Before the initial procedure, you will have a consultation with your healthcare provider to determine if JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC is appropriate for you, review your expectations and desired results, review any potential side effects, as well as identify the areas to be treated. JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC is a nonsurgical procedure and you can return to your usual routine after 24 hours.
Is the treatment painful?
JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC contains lidocaine, a numbing agent designed to minimize pain that can occur during treatment. Your healthcare professional may also choose to numb the treatment area with a topical numbing cream to further minimize pain.
How long will my results last?
Your results may last up to two years with optimal treatment. There is evidence that hyaluronic acid fillers such as JUVÉDERM® actually help to stimulate the production of new collagen by your own body so that longer duration of improvement may be seen. Other factors, such as health status, weight, body chemistry and the amount of volume injected can affect the duration of results.
What are possible side effects of JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA XC?
Side effects are mild and include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, discomfort, redness and itching.
